Maynard is a big lightweight and i think his wrestling would pose some problems for Henderson. Henderson's boxing is fairly limited, and he won't be able to knock Maynard out. Maynard also doesn't have the best striking but he also won't be as easy to leg kick which is a fairly big part of Henderson's game. I wonder if Maynard would be able to take Henderson down as he has a pretty solid base but Maynard also won't get pushed around by Henderson.
i agree. plus in a way Maynard did beat Frankie who many would argue beat Bendo. If he was competition for Frankie (and any softer chin and perhaps factor in harsh judging maybe in their second fight and Maynard probably won) then he's going to be a big threat to Bendo. This is all 'in theory'. Think Maynard can hurt Bendo similar to how he did against Edgar.
